STILL IN WARDERICK WELLS

Cheryl - windy, of course
We are still on a mooring ball here in Warderwick Wells, planning to leave tomorrow. Thinking we will head to Compass Cay, only about 16 miles away. They have a small marina and supplies but not much else there. We will probably only stay one night there. Weather is supposed to be great for the next 2 days, last night is blew all night at about 25 knots. Once we are out of the protection of the mooring field tomorrow we will decide if we want to go a little farther or go to Compass.
We met a great couple, Ross and Anna on Willhelm also moored here. They are from Australia. Ross has been working in the US for the past year. They recently bought their sailboat and are heading home in it to Oz. We spent happy hour (and a bit longer) on their boat last night. Bill has decided he will no longer trust an Aussie to make him Gin and Tonics, he is definitely suffering this morning. We were listening on the radio about a boat that was hard aground near here yesterday. Ross and Bill were going to get into the dinghy’s and try and help pull them off until the boat announced that they were 155 feet. So much for offering a hand. Apparently they were trying to contact a salvage company to come get them off the sand bar. Wonder if that captain will have a job much longer.
We have spent the last couple of days snorkeling and beach combing. This is a great location and much more of what we had in mind of what we were hoping to experience in the Bahamas
